MLA 2018: Southern Literary Studies and Activism: A Roundtable

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 11:25am
MLA Forum: Southern United States
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed roundtable seeks to address the role of activism in the study of southern literature and in the southern literary studies classroom. Given the numerous recent protests across the region and across academia, we look for scholars to discuss how their research and pedagogy engages social issues that affect and/or are inflected by the South. These projects may reveal the relationships between the region and the nation as well as the differences and similarities that emerge when different areas of the country engage with southern literary studies.

In the opening pages of Sherman Alexie's Reservation Blues (1995), Spokane Indian storyteller Thomas Builds-the-Fire comes into ownership of legendary African American bluesman Robert Johnson's guitar, a magical object that both furthers his band's musical aptitude and reopens the scars of historical memory. In Gish Jen's Mona in the Promised Land (1996), her titular Chinese-American protagonist, newly-relocated to an affluent New York suburb, converts to Judaism, arguing to her mother, "we are a minority, like it or not, and if you want to know how to be a minority, there's nobody better at it than the Jews."
